The health body goes on to list the problems caused by endometriosis.

It states: “One of the main complications of endometriosis is difficulty getting pregnant or not being able to get pregnant at all (infertility).

“Surgery to remove endometriosis tissue can help improve your chances of getting pregnant, although there’s no guarantee that you’ll be able to get pregnant after treatment.

Surgery for endometriosis can also sometimes cause further problems, such as infections, bleeding or damage to affected organs.

“If surgery is recommended for you, talk to your surgeon about the possible risks.”

How endometriosis is treated

If you’ve been diagnosed with endometriosis, your doctor or specialist should discuss possible treatment options with you.

Endometriosis UK advises: “Currently, there is no cure for endometriosis. The different treatments available for endometriosis aim to reduce the severity of symptoms and improve the quality of life for a woman living with the condition. The type of treatment you receive for your endometriosis should be decided in partnership between you and your healthcare professional.

“Your healthcare professional will consider many different factors when working out the best endometriosis treatment method for you, such as your age, the severity of endometriosis you have and the severity of your symptoms.

“We do not recommend any particular treatment for endometriosis, but support patients seeking treatment options appropriate to their individual circumstances.”

Treatment options available to women with endometriosis are surgery, hormone therapy and pain relief.
